An IP address is used to identify a computer across the internet.
Each network with an internet connection - both private and home networks - have their own unique IP address. IP addresses are typically used to form a connection - which can be used for a variety of purposes, such as surfing the web or streaming music and games.

It is likely that you will need to open the necessary network ports for the connection. Each connection will require a set of ports to operate on -- online games often have their own semi-unique port ranges, which can be further configured by the operator. It will be necessary to identify the port range used by the game server, and/or modify them to an available set of ports. Once this has been done, the port range must be opened on the network's modem or router - comprehensive hardware-specific guides on performing this task with can be found here.
